95 Point Black Slate!

Consistently one of the best Priorat's every year!  One of our favorites and the new one does not disappoint!!

2013 Mas d'en Compte Black Slate Porrera...$17.99
Another of the single-sector Priorat wines from importer Eric Solomon, the 2013 Mas d’en Compte is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan aged in a combination of concrete tanks. Large wood foudres and smaller French oak barrels. The wine offers loads of licorice and black raspberries and seems to represent the quintessential style of Priorat in its opulence – floral, blueberry and black raspberry fruit, intense minerality and silky, lush tannins. This medium to full-bodied wine should continue to drink well for another 5-8 years, possibly longer.
Rated 95/100 Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
